Italy Part 3 : Milan, the city of fashion ( 26/27 June)

Milan ( Milano ) is synonymous with style. This frentic metropolis city of 1.3 million souls is Italy's economic engine room , the powerhouse of world design and Paris arch rival on the cat walk. Milan is strictly for city lovers, its a huge noisy , traffic stridden ,harried and stressful. For its size , it doesnt have many big sights, except the Duomo and the the Last Supper by Da Vinci ( one word of advice, book early if you dont want to be turned away from the door , like I did, travelled miles a far to view but was turned away only feets away).However shopping is one thing to do here..LV , Gucci , Pucci , Fendi , Ferragamo , Hermes, Chanel, CD ..and wat d mat d...u name it, it has it......
